2.0 out of 5 stars Rushed to retail., 4 Mar 2014
Battlefield is one of those games with a fun, unpredictable online game mode, that offers many different ways to play.

First thing first, you can go online, have fun and be competitive. If you plan to have the odd game here and there, the experience you will have, will be fun and that next gen experience is very much there.
